Electrical related fires are a dangerous problem. Fire departments responded to an estimated average of 46,700 home fires involving electrical failure or malfunction each year. This is according to research from the National Fire Protection Association.

They also point out that home fires involving electrical failure or malfunction were most likely to occur in cold weather months of January, February, and December, which accounted for three in ten fires (30%). It is likely that home fires are more prevalent in winter months due to the increased use of space heaters and blankets, or flammable objects being left against electrical baseboard heating units.

Do an inspection of your home to see if you have overloaded outlets or other potential electrical problems. If you suspect a problem call a licensed electrician.
